Just throwing it out there: this forum could use a mod with a heavy hand.
Every day it is “Scripted BS! R2 ruins my life! [censored] everyone who isn’t me. Contact swing is worse than when my mother died of cancer! Quick pitching killer my nephew! Someone undercut me by 1 stub and I want to set his house on fire!”
The worst part is, that is the civil/productive part. From there we get to “this is your online record, you don’t get to have an opinion. Get gud. <insert bevy of personal attacks>”.
There are perfectly decent ways to complain/suggest improvements. “Hey SDS, it seems like tons of bombs are being hit with contact swing. Is anyone looking into that? It’s kind of Messing up the game for me.” Accomplishes everything that a massive toxic rant does.
Long story short. I have a suggestion: SDS, can you start suspending or banning the people who make these forums horribly toxic?
I understand your rage my friend and your need to vent. Everyone is effected and called to action by different catalysts.
I'm not necessarily sticking up for those that want to share their experiences in a heated fashion but, the fact is, there are things about this game that even the most open-minded will say is "scripted".
So, put yourself in the shoes of someone that "perhaps" has suffered through 3 or 4 straight games of these "unusual" events. Maybe they have some sense of pride in their records. They watch their records being destroyed, their commitment and practice just proven irrelevant by a game that seems to run on it's own frequency sometimes.
Again, even a patient person can lose their cool when things go south despite their best efforts to maintain. So try to be understanding and let others vent as you are allowed to vent about them and their actions.
